Description

Heightened with white and signed by artist, lower left. The ship shown is George Vancouver's 'Discovery' in her later career converted as a prison hulk in the Thames, apparently in the later part of it off Woolwich. It had done the same service off Sheerness for about ten years from conversion for that purpose there in 1808. See also PAD6034.
